Beebots: We have a set of Beebots on loan in the school for the next two weeks! All our pupils will have access to them and engage with basic programming at their own class level. Check website for exciting photos! This also coincides with Maths Week (15th – 19th) and our classes will also be undertaking Maths Trails around our school and in the local environment.

Road Safety Month: This is Road Safety and Fire Safety month. Our Junior Infants have all received their Hi-Viz jackets and please encourage them to use them as we approach the winter season. We will also have Fire Drill in the school and this also coincides with fire safety talks as we approach Halloween.

School Closures: School will be closed on Friday 26th October due to the Presidential Election /Blasphemy Referendum as our school campus is used as a voting station.

Mid-Term Break takes place from Monday 29th October to Friday 2nd November inclusive. School reopens on Monday 5th November.

Yours sincerely

Michael Maher
